As recognised by several commenters, this is the Sydney Opera House. It was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon.

Unfortunately the night I went to shoot this magestic building there was an open air concert in the forecourt, and scaffolding and security guards everywhere preventing shots from most angles. I had a different angle in mind, but this was the best I could get.

Thanks for the comments and votes.

It looks like a very interesting building, but because you have put the wide border at the bottom it looks like you are hiding the most interesting part, where all the lines are converging.

The sharpness in this is excellent. Great geometry as well. One of my top pics.

The slant of the picture caught my eye, and after thinking about it, I don't have a clue if I like it or not. I like the lighting on the domes, and the B&W.

Is this the Sydney Opea House? Fantastic composition. If it is, my guess is that this is HotPasta's photo......signature black border. In my top 3.

I was wondering if anyone would enter the SOH; I think it's probably so familiar to people around the world that it's possibly not so bizarre anymore. Anyway, you've got a good shot of it and you must have had quite a quick shutter speed because there's very little blurring among the people.

Great shot. While including the people shows the scale of the architecture, I would still have preferred a crop that would exclude the people there.

Great tones. patterns and light. B/W was the perfect choice for this.
